You can get some autographs if you don't mind standing in long lines. There is lots of things for the kids to do, batting cages, pitching games, Twingo. Tons of collector stuff there, cards, bobbleheads, that kind of thing.

Lots of info on tickets, new ballpark, minor league teams, live radio shows with big name Twins players, broadcasters, etc.

Plan on staying awhile and you can have a good time.

Thanks DonBo.

Do you have to pay for autographs or is that the autograph party I am thinking of?

It is a glorified collectors (SALE) show in my opinion. Lines are real long to get autographs. I've been twice but wasn't thrilled about going back, and probably wouldn't go back again.

I've never been one to stand in line so I guess I'm not totaly sure, but I believe autographs are free.

The only reason I would go is for the kids to get to see players and get autographs. I don't care to buy collector stuff.

Thanks guys.

if you are looking for mauer, morneau, killebrew, blyleven get to your line a minimum of an hour and a half in advance. they do strictly enforce the cutoffs no matter how long you have been waiting.

only for minor leaguers, and not even all of them. autographs for [PoorWordUsage] players are 5 bucks, 10 for decent players and 15-25+ pending what you want signed from guys like mauer and morneau and killebrew. if you want harmon to auto a bat i think it costs 50 bucks.

also that price is per autograph, not family. two kids, double the price.

Think I will pass on it. The $ goes to a good cause, but not for me this year.

We went a few years ago. For me the attraction was seeing the clubhouse... could not believe how small it was. No photos allowed in there, tho. Fairly decent tour: sit in the dugout, go up the steps to the clubhouse, sit in the media seats. But the LINES. For EVERYTHING. Not really worth it for most things offered. And you used to get a free ticket to a game (after waiting FOREVER in a line...) now, it's a buy-one-get-one-free ticket offer. Some nice memorabilia brought in from Cooperstown... no lines there, just wander around the field looking at the stuff.

It costs more money for the better players, and even more for the past Twins' players.

Some of them even have set rules where they can't autograph certain items. I think I remember Carew wouldn't autograph any bats. Pretty ridiculous I'd say...

      Heard you on Horseshoe and then a bit further south.   Hope you had some luck and stayed warm.

      I didn't find it, just passing the info of a post I saw on Craigslist. One would think if they could access the information, it would be a done deal.

      Any reports on Grindstone lake? What have y’all been catching and what size?
    • leech~~
      Couldn't you find any contact info or was the battery dead?

      You’ll like em.  And these temps are exactly the reason to invest in gear like that.  I just spent the entire day out fishing in mine.  Temp topped out at 5; wind gusts and snow.  Half the time in the open and half in a poorly heated flip over.

      Post on Craigslist that a person found a phone on North Center lake.....under sporting goods.

      Cars seem to be going to all areas of the lake.  Very light traffic.  I wasn't home this weekend so I don't know what was going on.

      Shiners are hard to find right now. If you can get smaller suckers those worked good.  I fished 32ft off edge of mud flat last weekend. Everything we caught was on Bobber or rattle reel. Tried everything from tinglers to rippin raps last weekend for jigging, no luck.  The extreme cold did not help.  I usually do good jigging. I usually fish 3ft off bottom that deep.  Every fish we did catch was over 25 inches. 4 total the whole weekend. Missed a few others. Rattle reels worked well. Orange glow seemed to be a good glow Jig.

      1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!

      Liberty beach 20 dollar weekend pass with free drink token lol. I ended going out of hunters to the mud flats last weekend.  Didn't see liberty beach sign until next day. Not sure how far there roads go out. Hunters was having problems keeping roads open due too cracking.  But they always had options to get in.  1 hour to get off lake Sunday as center road was closed.  Lots of people going out and some of the people were driving too fast on the roads. I was going 10 mph hauling my wheel house and had a guy pass me on way in with a tandem so... It is was it is.
